New Students - BIOL 1050 Restriction

UPDATE: The restriction has now been fixed. More spaces will open today or tomorrow. 

BIOL 1050 has mistakenly been restricted (thus not allowing you to select it). The issue has been raised with the Registrar's Office with hopes it will be fixed soon. 

New Students – Full Courses and Tips for When to Check Availability

I just wanted to give a bit of insight into how first year courses are monitored by departments and how it conflicts with the time of day when many of you are selecting courses. Most of us leave work before 5:00pm; just when course selection is really getting started by students as you get home from school or work. This may sometimes means that spaces fill up overnight when students are selecting and staff members are not monitoring spaces in courses.

Four Courses in First Semester?

Yes, students entering their first semester in the fall will only be taking four courses!

For the B.Sc.(Agr) degree program students are required to take a course worth 1.00 credits (AGR 1110). This course, in addition to the other three courses each worth 0.50 credits, will give you a total of 2.50 credits which gives you full-time registration.

This also means you cannot select an elective course for the fall semester.
